RAM - Overclocking?

Hi P
 Share

Go to solution Solved by Speed Weed,

Enable XMP? 

My DIMM is supposed to be 2666 Mhz, but BIOS shows it running at 2133 Mhz.

 

Do I have to change voltage and all that to make it hit near 2666 Mhz?

 

or since that's the base speed I just change the frequency in BIOS and call it a day?

 

Thank you

OP, make sure to enable the XMP profile in the BIOS. This should make the RAM run at the advertised speeds.

I wasn't aware of such feature, so I enable it and that's it?

Yes, but it's not always guaranteed to work (in which case you'll have to manually OC your RAM to its rated speeds).

Yeah. Enable XMP. 

It worked! :)

 

Thank you guys

 

I don't know if it's a placebo effect, but I feel stuff is loading slightly faster, I thought RAM speed only affected FPS in games

all programs use ram, the faster the ram the faster it loads and performs.
